Top 3 tips to throw a Groundhog Day party for the kids

Date Created: 01/11/2012

Top 3 tips to throw a Groundhog Day party for the kids. Groundhog Day may seem a bit frivolous to adults, but it is an enjoyable holiday for the little ones when they get to find out just how long the cold weather will last. Best of all, in the beginning of February, there's not a lot of big holidays on the horizon, so this could be a fabulous way to treat your kids to a winter party. Keep the following ideas in mind to commemorate Groundhog Day with style and perhaps start a family tradition.

1. Party invitations. Instead of going with the old standards of paper and envelopes, try something a little bit different. suggests investing in a few small groundhog stuffed animals. You can then take a small piece of paper, print an invitation and tie it to his arm with a piece of curling ribbon. When choosing a color, it's best to go with white and green, as these are the colors of winter and spring.

2. Winter and spring décor. Instead of going with a unified theme, you can split your venue right down the middle and decorate one side in a winter aesthetic and another with a spring scheme. You can use various colors of mylar balloons and streamers to add little bits of color, but you should also use the standards of snowflakes and snowmen for the winter side and floral decorations and plenty of greenery on the spring side. This will create a light-hearted atmosphere for your gathering and these winter party supplies will play an important role in pulling everything together.

3. Party games. Of course, after the little ones are done admiring your party decorations, you'll need a few activities to keep them busy. One idea is to cut out cardboard letters that spell out the word "groundhog" and hide them around the house. All you need to do is split the kids into pairs and see which team finds the most letters. The possibilities are nearly endless, so do some research to find a game that will work with the allotted amount of people and can keep the little ones busy.

Groundhog Day is often one of the most overlooked holidays of the year, but there's no reason you can't take a dreary February day and turn it into a memorable affair!
